Unsolicited Phone Call Scams: "Sell your timeshare"

Scams and scammers using these names: Steve or Kyle, 800-859-9394, Global Timeshare Sales
"he has a buyer for your timeshare"

Are you looking to sell your timeshare? Or you don't even have a timeshare, but received a call from "Steve or Kyle" claiming to be from Global Timeshare Sales at 800-859-9394? Note that reports from consumers claim that he says they has a buyer for your timeshare, but oddly, you have to pay him his commission and fees, upfront! Scam alert!  That's a clue to a scam right there! These callers may not even be employees of Global Timeshare - which may or may not be legitimate.  The point is: don't trust any unsolicited phone calls or emails you receive about selling a timeshare, house, etc.


Email 1 - from a potential victim:

I received a call from a Steve who said he represented Global Timeshare Sales.  He said that he had a buyer for my timeshare.  Since I have never spoken to anyone at that company, I was suspicious to begin with, but played along to see what the scam was.  After they "sold" my timeshare for a "great profit", the manager, Kyle Miller called and explained how I would be receiving all the closing papers, etc.  First I would need to use my credit card and pay them $1,950.  Since I wasn't willing to do that, I figured they could just take that out of the sale, he would just have to move on to the next property.  The contact phone # is 1-800-859-9394 ext. 103 for Kyle, ext. 114 for Steve.  The number that showed up on my caller ID was 407-581-3756.  Steve said they were located in Orlando, FL.  I looked up Global Timeshare Sales on Google and found the address in Kissimmee, FL but the number given had been disconnected; it was a 407 area code.  I found a website for Global Timeshare Sales and it said it was located in Brockton, MA.

I would hate to think these guys would get anyone to pay.  I'm sure that if they did, something would happen and the "buyer would back out or something".
